  • Patent number: 10843807
    Abstract: A system and method for reducing a psychoacoustic penalty of acoustic noise emitted by an aircraft, including a plurality of propulsion assemblies coupled to the aircraft, wherein each of the plurality of propulsion assemblies includes a motor, and a plurality of blades defined by a propeller, wherein the plurality of blades can define an asymmetric blade spacing; a control subsystem coupled to the aircraft and communicatively coupled to the motor of each of the plurality of propulsion assemblies, wherein the control subsystem is operable to rotate each of the plurality of propulsion assemblies at a different frequency to modulate the acoustic power distribution of the emitted acoustic signature.

  • Publication number: 20200331602
    Abstract: The rotary airfoil 100 defines a cross section and a span, wherein the cross section is a function of the point along the span (e.g., spanwise point) and defines an upper surface and a lower surface at each spanwise point. The rotary airfoil 100 also defines, at a cross section, a lift coefficient (CL) that is a function of the angle of attack at which the airfoil is rotated through the air. The system can optionally include: a rotor hub to mount the rotary airfoil, a tilt mechanism to pivot the rotary airfoil between a forward configuration and a hover configuration, and a pitching mechanism to change the angle of attack of the rotary airfoil 100.

  • Publication number: 20200013398
    Abstract: Input context for a statistical dialog manager may be provided. Upon receiving a spoken query from a user, the query may be categorized according to at least one context clue. The spoken query may then be converted to text according to a statistical dialog manager associated with the category of the query and a response to the spoken query may be provided to the user.
